The View From Here- A Call to Action

Posted in My Take on Autism tagged , , , , , , , , at 9:42 am by autismmommytherapist

I’d like to take a moment to thank my readers for their responses to last week’s piece, “The View From Here,” about the closing of two New Jersey developmental centers for disabled adults.  I’ve had many inquiries as to how to help, so I am posting a link below from the VOR.  It is time sensitive and action must be taken by Monday, June 23rd.  If you have a few moments and can write or call your legislators regarding New Jersey Assembly Bill A1110 or New Jersey Senate Bill S2198, I would greatly appreciate your help.  These two bills will slow the proposed closures of the Woodbridge and North Jersey Developmental Centers and the transition of disabled individuals back to New Jersey who now live in specialized out-of-state settings.



Thank you so much for your time, I truly appreciate it!

    Thank you for the work you are doing. We have a child who will be part of the return home initiative if we don’t make changes. The campus lifestyle of his out of state placement cannot be matched at this time and while he is set until June 2016 we need to prepare now. We want to help. Please keep us posted on what we can do via congress and we will continue to visit and volunteer in as many agencies, etc. we can to make a difference.

    • Jani, I appreciate your comment and all the work you’re doing on behalf of your child. I will keep everyone posted as opportunities come up. Thanks again and I wish the best to you and your family!
